Alan Jackson remains in touch with his working-class roots, even after 20 years of chart success and a superstar career. He’s proving that once again with his latest single, “Hard Hat and a Hammer,” and his recent concert in West Virginia that raised money for the families of area coal miners. “I come from a working-man background,” Alan says. “I know how tough things can be and I guess that’s why I feel that when an opportunity comes up to help someone like that [I do it].” Alan also talks about the video for “Hard Hat and a Hammer,” which features actual working men and women in various occupations.
